Here, students build strong working relationships with a network of supporters, from their Personal Development Tutor, to their lecturers to the Student Union, and through this supportive community, they achieve more than they ever thought possible
The University’s areas of specialism include teaching, sport, health and wellbeing, social sciences, business and performing arts.
